2017 The Year To Go Green

Our initiative 2017 – The Year To Go Green

At Green Touches, we realize that achieving sustainable development requires action on a number of different fronts. We firmly believe that there is no development in any field without partnerships and shared responsibility to work together for the benefit of society.

In this capacity, we are devoting ourselves to carry out these actions, based on the United Nations Global Compact principles and drive the initiative to enable the cleaning sector to make them responsible for United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) 3 & 9.

We see this as a priority and indeed our responsibility, to pressure the local market to adopt these global goals.

Green Touches is inspired by the words of HRH Sheikh Zayed Bin Sultan AL Nahyan when he says: “I encourage every person in the position of responsibility to perform his duties honestly and sincere and to double his efforts towards reflecting back the goodness and prosperity to his fellow brothers. The process of development and growth does not depend on people in position of responsibility only. But it needs the joint effort of each person living in this country”.

Our initiative is derived from the principle, and based on the knowledge that, businesses will thrive while supporting sustainability with the transition towards a green economy.

The goals of the initiative:
To achieve the highest levels of sustainability in the cleaning industry and associated practices in this industry in the UAE and the Middle East as a whole.

Key themes and criteria for a sustainable environment have been formulated, crafting a new framework for moving this important sector forward to a new level – Sustainability.
